BR Williams Becomes a Diamond Broker
This enables BR Williams to get its clients' goods from Point A to Point B faster and even more efficiently than ever before.
"Our new Diamond Broker status is really big for our clients," says Thomas K. Bardwell, VP of Logistics. "It really makes us stand out from thousands of other brokers, and it communicates to trucking companies that we're the one they want to do business with, ensuring that our clients get great service every step of the way."
The Diamond Broker status helps drivers and shipping companies see that BR Williams is an active member of the Transportation Intermediaries Association, or TIA. As such, they're assured that TIA verifies that BR Williams' bond is fully funded, current, and in full compliance with all Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations. They can also see that BR Williams consistently maintains an "A" credit score and have built a solid reputation with Truckstop.com for meeting or exceeding industry standards.
This new achievement also allows non-paying users of Truckstop.com see BR Williams' diamond score, which expands the company's reach to additional carriers. As a Diamond Broker, BR Williams is also able to assure carriers on its performance history and access special tools to make shipping easier for each of its clients.
BR Williams' goal is to ensure that its clients' products arrive on time at the correct destination, in excellent condition, and is shipped at the lowest possible cost. With its new Diamond Broker status, the company can zero in on carriers that will provide the best service to its clients.
"Because we began full truckload services back in 1958 – we started with just two trucks on a route to Boston – and we've grown our fleet quite a bit since then, we need to make sure each and every one of our clients are receiving the same high-level of service they've come to expect from BR Williams," says Bardwell. "Our Diamond Broker status ensures that we're front-and-center for the best carriers, and they want to work with us."
BR Williams provides a wide range of services to its clients, including contract cartage, drop trailers and expedited trucking, customized and automated KPI reporting, and distribution and warehousing.
"The bottom line is that with this Diamond Broker status from Truckstop.com, we're now able to provide our clients with even better, more efficient services than we've been able to provide in the past – and we've already built a reputation for excellence, so this is a significant step," says VP of Logistics, Bardwell.
